Online Catalogue for public art in Bath and North East Somerset

Date uploaded: September 20, 2009

Bath and North East Somerset Council has published an online catalogue of all the public art which has been commissioned in the district since 1945.

This is the first time that the Council has catalogued the diverse range of 170-plus works of art located outdoors and in public buildings.  Work includes murals, sculptures, mosaics, functional pieces such as benches, stained glass, and paintings.

Researching and producing the catalogue has involved re-discovering many exciting pieces of work and finding out about the background to how each piece was conceived and commissioned.

Councillor Terry Gazzard, Cabinet Member for Development & Major Projects (Conservative, Abbey) said: “Bath and North East Somerset is fortunate to have an impressive array of works of art in public buildings and outdoors.  This catalogue will be of great interest to residents and visitors alike who want to explore what we have to offer.”

The catalogue is available online through the Council’s website at www.bathnes.gov.uk/publicart and includes a detailed description of each piece and notes about the artist or designer.
